    Abstract:
    Curatorial note from Digital Pedagogy in the Humanities: Evan Hughes designed this midterm assignment for an introductory undergraduate class on creative coding that covers the basics of HTML and CSS as well as some elements of visual design. The assignment asks students to use existing code and modify it with attention to its visual presentation, resulting in a spatially oriented multimodal text. Using preexisting code opens the project to beginners and is a great way to build students’ confidence; it also shifts the emphasis from the code itself to its behavior and the ways in which HTML and CSS can be edited to change the look of a Web page. In emphasizing the underlying code, this project can foster a deeper understanding of the digital tools students use each day, though mostly in a superficial way.
